(SIGH) So Chad and I were talking about a certain piano playing diva who (a WHILE ago) said that The Phoenix Trap is the reason that she will never again play in coffee houses ..because we “talked during her performance” UGH! I’m sorry but a coffee house is a public space and if I want to talk to my mom, or my bandmates, or my pet rock during some boring-ass performance then that is my prerogative. I certainly wouldn’t care if a headlining or opening band talked while I was singing. It’s not like we were hooting and hollering and having a square dance while she was playing either…..Just normal coffee shop behavior with music in the background. She needs to get a life and fast!!! (Coffee shop patrons everywhere applaud The Phoenix Trap for their bravery in their quest to drive snobby divas out of coffee shops) Anyway, this did happen a long time ago but Chad and I were laughing about it the other day and I thought that you, my readers might get a laugh out of it. She is of no importance and I haven’t (thank god) seen or heard her play since then.
There is a line between talking during a performance and being distracting. Who knows how loud it took before the diva felt dissed? I can think of about 3 or 4 possibilities for who Theresa refers to. I posted this because 99% of what bands post online is the same boring old crap and this is part of the reason why the Phoenix Trap has a link here.
